Atlas Brew Works (Atlas) is planning the 2020 opening of a second DC location, this one in Navy Yard at 1201 Half Street SE. This expansion — and new tap room with 12 draft lines – would make Atlas the first manufacturing brewery to have multiple locations within the District.
The 4,500 square-foot space is across from the Center Field Gate at Nationals Park. Unlike the brand’s Ivy City facility, this larger location will have a kitchen and plans to offer a limited food program. Outdoor seating may also be available, as weather permit.
Head Brewer Daniel Vilarrubi will offer Atlas regulars the familiar beer offerings they love, like Ponzi, a west-coast style IPA, District Common, a craft lager, Dance of Days, a dry-hopped pale ale, Blood Orange Gose, a session sour brewed with pink Himalayan salt, and The 1500 South Cap Lager, brewed in partnership with the Washington Nationals, in addition to special releases that will only be available at the new Navy Yard location.
“It’s been our dream to expand Atlas and further our mission of producing environmentally responsible beer,” said Atlas Founder & CEO Justin Cox. “The tap room in Navy Yard will be double the size of the current tap room at our brewery in Ivy City, so it will definitely help us keep working towards that goal. Atlas’ portfolio of well-balanced beers offers something for everyone, and we’re excited to introduce these beers and our mission to even more people including fellow Nationals and DC United fans in our new neighborhood.”
